Pearl crescent

Hooray butterflies

This little orange butterfly is (as far as I can tell) a Pearl Crescent! It’s very similar to Silvery Checkerspot butterflies, except those silvery checkerspots have ring-spots on their hind wings, not polka-dot-spots.

…Truth be told, at the time, I was just happy to photograph a bug that stayed put long enough for me to take its picture.
